Flashing (f1 style) brake lights coding not working

I've tried to code in the blinking brake lights into my BMW f10 M5 '16 with no luck. Using VGate and Bimmer code and all seems to code fine, it just doesn't work. Coded using the lightest pressure and 5 blinks per sec. All other coding worked just fine. Saw on youtube on a different model something in advance coding needed to be turn on first, but not the same on my model.
Anybody have any luck coding this into a F10 M5?

Thank you

You referring to the blinking emergency breaking lights as on the Euro models?

It will only activate under heavy/emergency breaking, not all the time.

Yes, Euro style brake flashing. There's a setting for brake pressure= light ,med, and heavy pressure and i set it to the lightest setting and still nothing.
So i don't think that's it.

Okey.

I live in Europe, and so far I think I have managed to trigger it a handfull of times, I have had at least two BMW's with that function the last 6 years.
The times I have triggered it, it has been just before the ABS kicks in.

Best of luck solving it.
